Heart Rate at Rest
This is my favorite chart.
It directly shows how hard the heart has to work while resting if it’s over a 100 I would go see a doctor just to be sure there’s nothing seriously wrong. If there’s something blocking the blood flow or if there’s part of your body that needs more blood it will show up here.
For April I’ve had 10 days with over 7,000 steps.
Fitbits sets the goal at 10,000 steps per day, which is pretty good, but not an official recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Most experts say 7,000 to 8,000 steps are pretty healthy.
With the warmer months ahead of us I’m expecting this number to increase and you should too.
It looks like my weight loss has leveled out. But that’s OK, the main goal is better health so I don’t want to sacrifice health for weight loss. So what can I do to increase health? This is what I’ll be asking myself for the next month.
As you can see my sleep is a little erratic. However, the good points include 6 days with 8 hours plus of sleep.
I developed up some bad habits some 10 years ago where I would wake up late at night and do a couple of hours of work on the computer, and that really worked out well. But now I want better quality sleep.
I’m going to lower the chart bar to 7 hours and set up a routine at night.
Cardio Fitness or Overall Heart Rate Health
This chart gives an overview of your heat rate health.
There’s a good description on the phone or online, in short, I believe it measures how hard your heart works while resting and at peak periods while working out and then determines how efficient the heart works with the rest of your body.
This is why it’s so important to lower or follow your heart at rest.
